Role: Senior Mechanical Design Engineer
From its inception in the early 60's my client has paved the way in electro-optics technology. Being one of the first companies of its kind the business carries a real sense of company culture, something that is hard to come by in many of today's organisations.
My client designed, developed and manufactured some of the industry's first Optical Sight or Head-Up Display for fighter aircraft as well as the first Fire Control Systems for the Leopard 1 Battle Tanks. They are an organisation steeped in a rich history and they are currently looking for an experienced Senior Mechanical Design Engineer to join the organisation on a permanent basis. Within this role you will be working on products that include handheld night vision devices, thermal imagers, camera systems and imaging payloads for satellites.
The successful candidate will be working within the Space Department where they will be required to:
* Coordinate a multi-disciplinary team to develop sophisticated opto-mechanical instruments.
* Understand the requirements set by the customer, and convert these into a flying payload.
* Experience with mechanical and structural analysis understand materials, and have a very good understanding of all mainstream manufacturing processes, but especially high-precision machining.
* Liaise with many sub-contractors and be comfortable with making presentations and writing high-level procedures and reports.
To be considered you must be able to display an extensive experience in the use of high-end CAD and analysis software. This will preferably be experience with SolidWorks and SolidWorks Simulation but candidates who have experience with other high end software and 3D design packages may also be considered. Attention to detail is key within this position, you will be the main port of call for junior and less experienced engineers so being an excellent team-player is also a must. The deadlines within this role will be strict and you will be responsible for projects meeting deadlines so a strong and organised character best fits the requirements for this role.
As well as a fantastic working environment and career growth potential my client offers an attractive salary and competitive bonus package. To discuss this role and my client in more detail please don't hesitate to contact me.
